Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes called for Eric ten Hag to follow Mikel Arteta’s approach when he took over at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag is set to take over at Old Trafford at the end of the season, after he was officially announced as Manchester United’s new manager last week.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Scholes sees Arteta as the perfect example for Tin Hag as he makes his way to the Premier League. The Arsenal boss has put his side in pole position to finish fourth this season, having made a number of important decisions over the past few months, including ditching former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“It’s definitely a big job for him, it’s a big job for anyone,” Scholes said.
“I suppose there’s an element of risk about that, there’s an element of risk about any manager you hire.”

“He did well at Ajax, he has a really good pedigree of working with Pep at Bayern as well, but he just has to believe in his methods.”
“This job is ten times the job of Ajax. We know they are the best team in the Netherlands and they will always be the best club, the biggest club in the Netherlands, but Manchester United is a world football club and it’s going to get criticism sometimes because that’s the way it’s going to come.” “.
“I think he has a group of talented players, he just has to make this group of players believe in his methods. I think it is quite clear that this group of players, especially the last coaches, did not believe in what they are training and did not believe in how to play.
“He has to become a tough coach, a little bit the way Arteta did at Arsenal. This was a huge rebuilding job, and he took no nonsense. I think this coach has to be exactly the same.”
